A Studded Collar

Time sure flies...

Since I last blogged, I went through a series of interviews for my dream job... And I got it!

I will tell you more about it in due course however for now, I have just been busy getting used to my role and changing my routine from lazy student to 9-5er.

Moving on, it seems despite my absence that I've been nominated for the Navabi Curvy Blog Awards 2013 - a big thank you to whoever nominated me - see my sidebar for the link to vote!

Now onto my outfit...






I wore this outfit back in July. You'll notice Claire's 2 Tone Spikey Flower Hair Clip [exact] in my hair. It's a lovely hair clip however it doesn't last very long. I have had it just 6 months and the clip is already broken - gutted. Luckily, it isn't pricey so they're fine as a short-term investment.

I worked as a part-timer for Karen Millen during Summer and bought this Stud Collar Jersey Top [exact] for uniform. I don't usually wear high necks however I really wanted to buy into the studded collar trend while I could. (It was also one of the few garments that fit my breasts - the brand runs small on the bust.) As I always do with sleeveless garments, I added my trusty Bolero [similar] from Cache Cache.

The Waffle Textured Skater Skirt [similar] and Leggings [exact] are from New Look while the Ballet Flats [coral version] are from H&M. I do love the flats I get from H&M however they also don't seem to last more than 6 months. I already have holes between the sole and fabric in mine. Again I would just recommend these as a short term investment.

I will shut up now and get to replying to all those lovely comments you left me while I was gone... Have a lovely week my fabulous readers!
